No Proc in No CP = No Good

This is the worst decision they could have made. Relegating the no proc Cyrodiil to no cp is a huge mistake. You're immediately shutting out players who want to go back to no proc but will be forced to choose between no proc sets or using their CP they spent years earning.

Furthermore making either BR of GH no proc would have brought balance to the two campaign populations, which is desperately needed.

Way to go. You missed a wide open dunk to win the game.

    They could have still have Raven no proc.

    But to your point, based on that logic no one should be using CP gear. If you really want everyone to be on equal footing.

    I still have not received a definitive answer as to whether or not Ravenwatch is getting cannibalized for the No-Proc Frankenstein.

    I asked about a zillion times in their stream but was ignored every time.

    All of Ravenwatch is hoping that they do the right thing and create a separate campaign for that game mode.

    Pretty sure they've repeatedly said a new one and it would be pretty logical decision. Anyway we'll be able to tell tomorrow already.

    Good decision in the purpose to bring everyone closer in a fair competition. Where is the verification this is going to happen?

    Why? Some quick thoughts:
    A: Not everyone knows what proc sets are the best to use.
    B: Not everyone has the DLC's and access to equipment.
    C: Not everyone has the same amound of CP.
    D : CP is making the fights shifty.
    E: Not everyone is playing the OP class.
    F: The campaign will become more lively.
    G: Less strong farming (ball) groups.
    H: Not everyone is playing in a group
    I: It could be Ravenwatch.
    J: More attractive to new players.

    Not a bad question really. I mean, are they going to have the population to split it into two separate campaigns? I wouldn't think so.

    Powerful skill, do something or spam dots. The opponent gets damage from heaven.

    No proc = player skill vs player skill, class vs class. No dmg from others sources

    I miss for no proc Cyro

    I totally support a no cp no proc camp. But no proc worked great in GH and BR. One of them should be made no proc.

    And again, if you're arguing that some people are at a disadvantage because of lower CP I have two retorts.

    One, they can go no cp right now but most don't.

    Two, if that's your thinking, them every piece of gear should be dropped to level 50 in no cp. Because if i'm 1 CP with level 50 gear I'm at a huge disadvantage to someone running 160 gear.

    Have they ever renamed all the campaigns to avoid such issues?

    Indeed they have. The current campaigns are all named after Greymoor locations. Prior to that, they were named after Elsweyr dragons. Prior to that, they were named after Morrowind false gods, etc... No reason they won't have a new round of Blackwood-based names with U31, and can add a fifth option.

    Funny how you mention balance and CP. CP is the ONLY factor that creates imbalance between players. Some have a lot, and some don't have many, which is why many of us enjoy the no cp campaign where everybody is on equal footing.
    Bringing no proc to a no cp campaign means new and returning players with really low CP can enjoy PvP without proc sets or higher champion point players.
    I know a lot of you will hate me for this, but I think it's great.

    This isn't as true as it used to be. The new/current CP system, with the four slottable active skills, alleviates the extreme imbalance we saw in CP 1.0. And, with the most recent changes made, in how many points can go in passive perks, etc., the field is even more balanced. It's true that if you have less CP, you're going to have to be very specific in where you spend your points because you don't have extra to spare - but it's not the same as it was before the new CP system was implemented.

    Please abstain from making such strong statements. You may have personal reasons for it, and things might be different in the US, but

    Tigor and I represent a substantial part of Europe's veteran NoCP campaign playerbase, something you probably did not know. We haven't been involved in the decision, but if the Devs would have asked me, I would have estimated - based on guild members' stated opinion -, that among those, roughly 60% are in favor of the NoCP No Proc campaign, 30% don't care, and mainly only the Bombblade players are against it.

    My personal opinion should be clear, as one can easily see on my avatar. I will miss my beloved Deadroth. But sometimes you have to see the greater good as well as the clear majority independent of personal desires.


    For now, it is more important to change how VD works, and then buff Proximity Detonation to compensate for it, so that Bomblade players can still have fun in a No-Proc environment.

    Some players enjoyed it for a week or two but quickly grew bored of using the same 19 sets for months on end. Nobody that I know is interested in seeing that ruleset return.
    In stream Gina confirmed that in no-proc will be much more sets avaiable - probably they will add all these minor/major buffs and other sets with some conditions which are not pure procs.

    Do we really need a no-proc campaign?
    I'm seeing very little use of them now and they usually hit not too hard. At least in no cp.
    Is it worth to split the campaign and playerbase in two?

    Yeah, but now procs are destroyed in PvE and this is not good either. It's not only about procs, it will be much healthier for game if some sets can stay good or even op in PvE and are not allowed in PvP (then is no reason to nerf them). So many good sets were nerfed only because they were overused in PvP. Some sets you just can't balance for both PvE and PvP.

    It is funny how players still make claims that no-proc improves performance and there won't be as much lag.
    Even ZOS said in their statement (before they went no-proc) that the performance got even slightly worse during the no-proc testing.

    Just say it 20 more times and it might become reality, right?

    Then I will tell you something more. No need to repeat. I am living in reality and presence. Throwing everything in battle is certainly causing distortion and handicap the area. So do proc sets, I classify that as lag. What ZOS stated is something else.

    I prefer CP campaigns, but I will most likely jump to maining this new No CP, No Proc campaign, if only to play without the procs. It'll definitely mean I have to retool how I approach builds entirely, but I enjoyed the 3 months of no-proc cyrodil.

    I mean, I guess it makes sense if we're considering the campaign to be the "pure gameplay" campaign, but I'd much prefer this mode on an alliance locked server so the pop stays up in off hours, and we only have the CP campaign for that. If the alliance locked 24/7 server is what people consider to be the competitive "main campaign", I'd like it to have some cheese-proofing, to keep the spirit of the 24/7 competitiveness balanced.

    Mostly tho, I just play alliance locked CP cyrodiil, and like no proc, so I would like to be humored... Humor me!!! :3

    Making either BR or GH no proc would be the best because it would help balance the populations WHICH IS DESPERATELY NEEDED.

    The no-proc campaign will always be a secondary campaign. We could argue this back and forth before the test, but they put no-proc on the live server for over two months and it collapsed the population.

    Simply put, most people in cyrodiil want proc sets. Whatever we think personally, the players voted with their feet and you cannot really argue it any more.

    Now, the worst possible outcome would be to demand a no-proc version of every campaign - thereby further subdividing the PvP population even further. Let's be happy that there is a no-proc, no-CP 'pure gameplay' zone to play in. It's some progress that most players would never have expected to happen this time last year.

    Don't know where you were playing, but on PC NA grayhost was popping. Don't spread lies like that. Zos said it themselves there was outpouring support for no proc, but now that its moved to no cp, proponents of crutch sets will say that it was never popular when in fact, the reason it's gonna be dead is because of no cp.
